Far-Fetched Friday: Kyler Murray to Be Traded for Aaron Rodgers


Out of seemingly nowhere, Kyler Murray deleted all Arizona Cardinals content from his social media and unfollowed the team. Depending on what generation you're in, you may or may not feel that's a big deal. I think it shows that, at the very least, he's annoyed with the Arizona Cardinals front office. And with the fact that multiple elite quarterbacks are simultaneously looking to be traded for the first time in NFL history, Kyler Murray will be swapped for Aaron Rodgers.

Welcome back to Far-Fetched Friday, where every Friday we give you a bold prediction that we believe will come to fruition. This Friday we look at some Instagram beef.

I've got a good friend that's an Arizona Cardinals fan, and he seems fed up with the situation. So much so that he floated the Aaron Rodgers idea. For the second straight season, Kyler Murray has gotten worse towards the end of the year. After starting 9 and 2, the Cardinals ended with two wins in their last five games. Last year, they started 6 and 3 and ended up winning just 2 of their last 7. So, there is understandably some frustration from the fans.

Kyler Murray may also have his reasons too. His playing style puts him at risk, and rumors are he'd like an extension now, but the franchise is hesitant. Right or wrong is not up for debate here; the only thing that matters is that both sides do not see eye to eye.

Now I doubt this will happen since the Cardinals are in the NFC, and the Packers have basically said if they do trade Rodgers, it will not be to a team in the same conference. However, the Cardinals may offer the best assets in return if one of those assets is Kyler Murray, one of the best young quarterbacks in NFL history who continues to improve season after season. The Broncos, Steelers, and Titans have been mentioned, but none of those franchises offer a 24-year-old quarterback multi-time pro-bowler in return for Rodgers.

That option in return may be most enticing to the Packers, a franchise that hasn't had a non-elite quarterback since 1991. Brett Favre to Aaron Rodgers to Kyler Murray might be a lot more enticing than handing off the keys to Jordan Love.

And for the Cardinals, many believe they have the assets needed to make a Super Bowl run. All they need is a veteran quarterback, and that Super Bowl window may close by the time Kyler Murray gets there.

Only time will tell but Kyler Murray to be traded for Aaron Rodgers is my Far-Fetched Prediction.

I tried this last year with Jack Grealish to no success. But never one to shy away from failure, I am here to try my hand again at speaking a transfer into existence for Arsenal. This time it's with one of my favorite players, Frenkie De Jong.

There was a lot of movement this summer with strikers in the premier league. Gabriel Jesus made his way to London to join Arsenal, Darwin Nunez left Benfica for Liverpool, and Erling Haaland, the most wanted striker in quite a while, made his way to Manchester City. It begs the question, which of these strikers will score the most goals...

With the 2022 NBA free agency in full swing, some big moves have been made around the league. Jalen Brunson to the Knicks, Christian Wood to the Mavs, Raul Neto to the Cavs, BUT there's one man even 10+ years in that never gets mentioned, and I'm sick of it. The most impactful move of this year and the difference...

Much has been said about the Erling Haaland transfer to Manchester City, with people firmly planted in one of two camps. One camp says because he's at his best in open space, Haaland will struggle for a City squad that operates against packed in low blocks because of their possession-dominant style. The other camp says Haaland is a transcendent...
